First of, you might want to post in english in a English forum... Just a thought.

The solution to your problem should be to install wine. I think the proper command should be

First add the wine repo if you dont have it already
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

next update it
sudo apt-get update

finally install wine.
sudo apt-get install wine1.3

You should now be able to install STO under Linux, without running macros that make Ubuntu less safe than it already is.
To avoid the whole safety procedure, just launch the sto-exe rather than the launcher. That way you will only need the launcher for updating.

On that note, you cannot run execeuteables throug browsers, and especially not windows exe's throug firefox.

Also, at this time Cryptic has not interest in developing STO for either Linux and/or Mac.

Hope this answers your question.
